Forms of Digital Deception:
Online deception can occur in numerous ways. Many of these false statements are intended to provide some advantage to the liar. Common forms of deception in virtual communities assume many different forms. The most basic type of identity deception is intrinsic to online fantasy worlds. However, such deception occurs frequently in other interactions where participants engage in group discussion. Whether the user takes on a different gender, background, personality or appearance, this behavior has the potential to victimize and exploit another user. Deception also occurs in failure to reveal a critical bias. Thus, the lack of aural and visual cues in cyberspace facilitates identity deception. Other types of deception looks more like fraud where users intend to steal information, money and also hijack connections. Exaggeration and insincerity is provoking as it also provides a substitution for those craving a genuine emotional response. False promising and false advertising occurs frequently online because there is limited ability to view, understand a identify fraud. The notion of belonging to a virtual community is appealing due to the absence of social pressures and commitments.
